How to project a spline onto a cylinder???

I have aerofoils on a plane which is as shown in fig.3 of attachments they are lying on the different parallel planes. but I want to have them like how they are shown in images 1 and 2. In images 1 and 2, the aerofoils are projected onto right circular cylinder fashion. I have attached the igs file of various splines.

looks like Catia. did you make the scans from Clay or some CFD software? You should be using NACA forms for your wings. To project upon something you can use either 'project' or 'wrap'. Both tools require a sketch to project and a surface to project upon.
